We had the good fortune of connecting with Camden Yacobucci and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Camden, how do you think about risk?
Risk is the main thing that drives me to pursue my career in music. I remember sitting in my dorm room in New York City balling my eyes out because I was scared to follow my dreams and forget about the easy route. But I knew if I ever wanted to be truly happy in my life then I would have to take those risks. I knew in that moment to never let fear or risk get in my way and I haven’t looked back since.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have been around music my whole life, and it eventually led me to want to make my own. I was in band in high school. As much as I didn’t enjoy the program I didn’t realize how many essential things I learned about music. I’m definitely nowhere near where I want to be musically but I would never take this journey for granted. Mentally it takes a lot to keep going, like a lot . This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life but I have a work ethic unlike anyone else and I have that drive to never slow down. I put the gas down 24/7. Sometimes it’s not the best on me physically and mentally but I have to do what it takes to beat the odds. My name is my everything. “Yacobucci” is my last name so i represent my family and everything I love about myself. That’s why my logo is a “Y”. When you see the logo you see my face, when you see my face you see the logo. My brand is my everything.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I definitely would take them straight to Malibu. That’s my favorite place to take anyone or even just go alone. The peace and beauty there is unreal. I would also take them to all the taco trucks, I have like five right by my house. I’m pretty basic so I definitely would have to stop at Cheesecake Factory. I also love taking people to the Getty center. Grab some lunch and have a little picnic, maybe head to Venice beach after and catch the sunset.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shoutout my family and friends for constantly supporting me. But most importantly I need to give a shoutout to my father. He is the person that convinced me to drop out of school and follow my passion. He truly is my biggest fan.
